New on Home Video: "Rio," "Stake Land," "Conan" & More

An animated musical, a dark vampire adventure, Arnold in a loincloth, once bitten surfers, a Russian Raymond, and Melissa Leo's dark secrets round out this week's home theater fodder.

Rio
"The Social Network's" Jesse Eisenberg voices a domesticated macaw who ends up having to survive the wilds of Rio de Janeiro in this animated adventure. Read our theatrical review and watch the trailer

Stake Land
Under-the-radar gem about a teen who teams up with a wandering loner to survive in a vampire-plagued America. Read our theatrical review and watch the trailer

Exporting Raymond
"Everybody Loves Raymond" creator Phil Rosenthal wrote and directed this documentary about trying to translate "Raymond's" brand of humor for Russian audiences. In Russia, camera mugs to you! Watch the trailer

Soul Surfer
AnnaSophia Robb, Dennis Quaid, and Helen Hunt star in this fictionalized account of the true story of Bethany Hamilton, a surfer who is forced to overcome her fear of the ocean following a shark attack. Watch the trailer

Conan the Barbarian/Conan the Destroyer [Blu-ray]
In case you haven't heard, there's a new "Conan the Barbarian" movie coming out. So what is best in life? "To cashgrab your enemies, see them driven to Best Buy, and to hear the lamentations of the standard DVD owner." Watch the trailer

Streetwalkin'
Be careful what you wish for. Winning an Oscar has been both a boon to actress Melissa Leo, and a curse, as every movie she ever appeared in will be trudged out on video. Like this, her 1985 debut film - a tawdry cheapie about hookers and mean streets. Watch the trailer

Spy Kids/Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams/Spy Kids 3D: Game Over [Blu-ray]
In case you haven't heard, there's a new "Spy Kids" movies coming out. The first three installments are coming to Blu-ray, and you can catch a sneak peek behind the scenes here.
